Thing Dallas Mavericks fans should be thankful for in 2022: 1. Luka

Every NBA fan should be thankful for Luka Doncic. He is the only player in the league who looks like he is having a bad game before fans realize he is approaching 30 points with eight rebounds and eight assists. Doncic leads the NBA in scoring so far this season as he continues to prove that he is an unstoppable offensive force that just keeps getting better.

Luka is the king of the stepback. He has added a deadly mid-range to his arsenal in recent years, and the 23-year-old is one of the league’s best finishers at the rim. There is no defending Doncic. Teams just hope to slow him down.

Luka has improved his defense again this season. The 23-year-old has 29 steals through his first 15 games, and he is better at defending on the ball. Doncic is never going to be a lockdown defender, but he working hard to improve his defense and become a two-way player.
